Scott Greenhalgh is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Siena College. Scott has been selected as an MAA Project NEXT fellow, a Biomedical Data Science Innovation Lab innovator, an REUF fellow, and a GBD collaborator at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Previously, Scott worked as a postdoctoral scholar at both Queen's University in Canada and at Yale University's School of Public Health. Scott's current research program centers on applying mathematics to evaluate the impact of disease interventions, public health policy, and virulence evolution on both the health and economic burdens of disease.
